Where can you find Santa Claus in the world?

The Santa Claus Village, which claims to be Santa's official residence, is located here. Santa Claus, also known as Joulupukki in Finland, visits this community every day of the year (except, presumably, at Christmas, when he is away distributing presents).

His home is a wooden cabin that was built in 1972 by Finnish carpenter Rene Hellberg and his wife Wilma. The couple sold their house in Los Angeles and moved to Viroqua, where they spent four years building the village.

Santa's workshop is filled with all sorts of toys that he has made over the years. There are also several restaurants and shops in the village that sell gifts and souvenirs.

Santa comes from the North Pole, but since 1972, when the Santa Claus Village was founded, he has been visiting Viroqua every day except on Christmas Day.

There are actually two villages. The original one is located in the United States near Viroqua, Washington. But the Santa Claus Association has also has offices in Helsinki, so there is also a village in Finland.

In addition to visiting Viroqua, Santa also travels to London, Toronto, and Montreal. And each year, he delivers hundreds of letters to children all over the world through the postal service.

Where is Santa's house?

The Santa Claus Village in Rovaniemi, located in the Arctic Circle, is renowned as "Santa's official North Pole abode" and is one of Finland's most famous tourist sites. The town is available all year for children of all ages to visit Santa and his elves. There are also many other fun activities to do in Rovaniemi including ice skating in a winter wonderland setting, hot-air ballooning, and snowmobiling.

In addition to visiting with Santa, young people can write letters to him, paint pictures, make crafts, or play games. There are also special shows every weekend at which local artists perform festive music while children watch decorated Christmas trees being put up outside city hall.

The village was founded by Finnish settlers who came here looking for gold but only succeeded in creating a famous Christmas market where now many traditional gifts can be found. In the early 20th century, when Rovaniemi was still known as "the American capital of Europe", many Americans lived here too. They built small wooden houses with green shutters on the streets named after states or countries. Some of these houses have been turned into shops or restaurants where you can find delicious American cuisine.

Today, visitors can stay in one of the Santa's House apartments which feature luxury amenities such as full kitchens and separate bedrooms. Each apartment has a balcony with views of the forest or the town square.

Does Santa Claus live in Sweden?

Do children expect to get presents from Santa Claus?

Yes, kids around the world hope to receive a gift from Santa Claus on Christmas Day. He doesn't come down your chimney but instead uses an opening in a door or window.

Is it true that Santa comes only on Christmas Day?

No, but most of his activities take place on that day. He makes visits to families all over the world and will never visit the same one twice.

Does everyone in your family have to be sleeping before you can see Santa?

No, you can watch for Santa anytime after Thanksgiving until just before Christmas.

He arrives between 5:30 and 6:30 PM. Some people say he takes longer to travel across the sky than others, so his arrival time varies greatly.
